ALL AQUEOS OPERATION BASES AND OFFSHORE PROJECTS ARE CONTAINED WITHIN THE ENVELOPE OF OUR ISO CERTIFICATION.
ISO 9001 – QUALITY STANDARD
Having a quality management system implies that one has created a structure for how to work with quality issues. Furthermore, there are solid business practices and routines documented in a quality manual. Customers naturally demand products and services with characteristics that meet their needs and expectations. When working with a quality management system, these needs, and expectations are expressed in the product and service specifications.
The customers’ construction or inspection requirement can be specified either by the customer or by Aqueos Corporation. In both cases, it is ultimately the customer who decides whether the product is acceptable or not. Aqueos Corporation improves and refines its underwater construction products and subsea inspection services in response to changes in customer needs, expectations, and technological advances.
